historically queer is a new podcast project showcasing the lives and stories of lgbtq activists of color. the podcast will weave together old tape cassette interviews (of queer legends, many of whom are no longer alive) and present day interviews to present stories both in documentary narrative and q&a interview form. the show is hosted by community historian and activist Alice Y. Hom, and is funded by the Soros Equality Fellowship.
i am a producer/editor/consultant on the project. more info about the project + team here.
Introduction: The Origin Story
Alice was once a young, college-going, closeted baby dyke. Then one day, she met someone. A role model. Someone who ended up shaping her perspective and influencing, well, everything that came after. Including the making of this podcast.
